Today we are going exploring in the VA Beach area so I picked a soft cotton dress with a nautical feel. It's very pretty and the perfect temperature out!
It didn't really have a whole lot of shape at the top so I took it in a little bit.
I totally forgot my scissors. I generally carry like 6 pairs of scissors on me too. These are Brittany's! I cut the length a little bit.
I popped the bottoms off because they were in an awkward place.
My friend Brittany works for a Non-Profit and she told us about the St. Jude's Dream Home that you can enter to win. It's free admission on the weekend so we decided to go on an adventure. My friend, Ryan, is an architect so I made him pose with me.
This house was SUPER cute. It is 3 bedrooms and in a really cute area. It had some pretty fun features like a huge walk in closet and a shower so large that we could fit 6 people in it.
The builder did a really great job making this new build house have alot of character!
If you want to enter to win the house, you have to pay $100. There was one drawing for $1000 and it was free :)
After seeing the beautiful house, we were headed to Ryan's parents house. Brittany pointed out that there was a thrift store she had always wanted to stop in. Let's go!
There was a fooseball table. We naturally had to play. Brittany and I beat Ryan 5-0.
Ryan said that if we went to the thrift store, we had to go to Tractor Supply. Here we go!
They had baby chickens and a sign for baby ducks. They didn't have any in however. You also had to purchase 6 baby ducks at a time!
I decided to pose with this cute stuffed chicken since there were no baby ducks.
Here's the final result! It's not a bad dress for .20 cents and only 5 mins to fix it!
